Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to evaluate the policy pursued by Swedish transport authorities in order to determine if the number of trips made by local public transport could have been increased without increased subsidies. The evaluation is based on annual data from Swedish counties. It is found that between 1986 and 2001 public transport fares exceeded the passenger maximising fare most of the time in all but two counties. The average deviation ranged from 1 percent to 215 percent. The evaluation of  the alternative (passenger maximising) policy, including both fare and service changes, for 2001 showed that demand for local public transport in the Swedish counties could have been increased by 0 – 178 percent without increasing subsidies. Aggregated, this represents a 2,3 percent increase in trips made by local public transport in Sweden.
